In an interview with Nikkei, The Pokemon Company’s CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara revealed that they are thinking of creating a new accessory that would make playing the game less “dangerous” for players. However it seems that for now the company is only thinking about it so it is unclear if or when such an accessory would be released.
Ishihara was quoted as saying, “To avoid the danger, we also released “Pokemon Go Plus,” the smartphone-linked wearable device, so that “Pokemon Go” players do not have to always be looking down at their smartphone screens. Together with Nintendo, we are thinking of developing a new device that can be played more safely.”
It will be interesting to see what they might be able to come up with, but so far the folks at Niantic have been actively updating the app to include features that effectively prevents players from playing while driving.
